We DO Believe…

 

We believe the Lord our God is one God – the Father, the Son (Yeshua/Jesus) and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4, John 1:1-14, John 10:30)
Please reference “The Divine Nature of God” series here.

 

We believe that salvation is through Yeshua/Jesus alone. (John 14:6, Acts 4:10-12)  We are saved by grace through faith, and not by works.  (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Please reference the “Grace” series available here!

 

We believe God (Elohim) created all things whether in heaven or on earth or below the earth through His Son Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Anointed). (John 1:1-3)
Please reference “The Divine Nature of God Part 2: God’s Plural Nature in Genesis; John’s Commentary on the Beginning” available here!

 

We believe the Bible (Old and New Testament) is the infallible Word of God (Psalm 119:160) and the contents within are given by inspiration of God and are profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and for instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).

 

We believe it is every believer’s responsibility to read and study the Bible themselves, to hear, to learn, to do, and to fulfill His Word (Deuteronomy 31:12).

 

We believe that Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth was conceived by the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit), (Matthew 1:18) was born in the flesh as a man (John 1:14) and was crucified for the sins of the world, (John 3:13-17) though He knew no sin. (2 Corinthians 5:21) Yeshua (Jesus) was resurrected the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and He is now seated at the right hand of the Father. (Luke 22:69)

 

We believe it is Yeshua’s (Jesus) blood that makes atonement for our souls and through Him the priesthood has been changed. Yeshua is our new High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek  (Leviticus 17:11Hebrews 9:22-26Hebrews 4:14, 8:1,Hebrews 7:12).

 

We believe that whoever confesses Yeshua (Jesus) as the Son of God must repent of their sins and be baptized (immersed)(Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:16, and Acts 2:38).
Please reference the “Elementary Principles of the Messiah Parts 5 and 6: Baptism” available here!

 

We believe because of the redemptive work of the Messiah, Jew and Gentile are no longer separate but rather one new man by grace through faith in Yeshua (Jesus)(Ephesians 2:11-22; Romans 11:13-18).

We believe that our Lord and Savior is coming back soon to gather together His children (the elect of God) and bring the world into final judgment. (Mark 13:26-27)
Please reference the “Elementary Principles of the Messiah Parts 3-6: Resurrection of the Dead” available here!

 

We believe that the true followers of Messiah will be sealed with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13) and will thus be led by the same Spirit. It is this Spirit that testifies that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Son of God, it is the Spirit that convicts the world of sin, (John 16:8) it is the Spirit who is a Witness, an Intercessor, a Teacher, and a Helper. A true believer has a very intimate relationship with the Spirit of God and will produce the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) for this is what was promised through the Prophets, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. If the Lord anoints us with the Holy Spirit we have then become partakers of the promised New Covenant.

We believe that if you love God you will keep His commandments and all of His commandments are summed up in this: that we love the the Lord our God with all our heart, our soul, and strength and that we love one another as Yeshua (Jesus) has loved us. (Matthew 22:35-40John 14:15)

We Do NOT Believe…

 

We do NOT believe Sacred Name theology, a theology that believes that one CANNOT use or say the English names of Jesus, God, or Lord, as they are seen as corrupt versions of His Hebrew name Yeshua.  We believe this theology is a distraction from what true faith is based on: relationship with and obedience to Yahweh.
Please reference “The History of HIS Name” available here!

 

We do NOT believe in Replacement Theology, a theology that states the Church has replaced Israel, or Dual Covenant Theology, a theology that claims there are different paths of salvation for Gentiles and Jews.
Please reference Discover Your Calling Into Israel Part 1: Grafting in Gentiles; Jesus’ Desire to Unify Jews and Gentiles available on our website!

 

We do NOT believe a KJV-only theology, a theology that dictates the superiority of the King James Version of the Bible over all other versions, even over the original Hebrew and Greek texts.  We primarily use NKJV for reading in English, but acknowledge that most translations convey a majority of Truth.  We believe in the importance of studying the Bible in its original languages.

 

We do NOT believe in the majority of Calvinism, such as Once Saved, Always Saved.  However, we also do NOT believe that Christians are without sin, (1 John 1:8) and we do NOT believe that a single sin will cost a Christian his or her salvation. (1 John 1:9)
Please reference Once Saved, Always Saved? available on our website!

 

We do NOT believe in an Anti-Pauline theology. Anti-Pauline doctrine states that Paul’s teaching is contrary to that of Jesus Christ, and that therefore Paul’s doctrines and his Epistles should be rejected. We believe that: “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17, NKJV). Here are just a few examples proving the legitimacy of Paul’s ministry: Acts 9:1-18, *1 Cor 9:1-2, Acts 15:22, *Gal 2:9, 2 Peter 3:15-16.
